    If you’re looking for something for your kid to do during school closure, sign your kids up for beestar.org. I’m a parent of three kids and just started my third kid with Beestar. All of my kids love it. There are programs for all grade levels and all subjects, and even programs to prepare your kids for the SAT. Grade 1 to Grade 8 Math programs and Grade 9-12 SAT Math are free all the time.

    Try out: Beestar.org - Exercise Samples

    I’ve tried to sign my kids up for many online education programs, but the problem is that after a few weeks, they always lose interest. That was until I signed them up for Beestar, which we are still doing after 4 years. Beestar’s novel concept of a weekly honor roll with trophies and medals at the end of every term sets a cadence that incentivizes students to keep up with their programs every week, for 18 weeks on end. I was very impressed with the way that the weekly honor roll kept my kids motivated, and after their first term with Beestar, they wanted to improve next time to get more trophies and medals. Now instead of me asking my kids to do their Beestar exercises, my kids are asking me to sign them up for more programs in the coming term. I’m so glad that we found Beestar—my kids love it, and they are learning so much.

    I’ve never seen any website before like Beestar that kids choose to stick with from first grade all the way to college. Beestar shows just a few examples of students that have spent years and years doing their programs in their Hall of Fame:

    Many of these kids attend top college after doing Beestar for 5 to 10 years.

    Beestar programs are a bit on the more advanced and challenging side for most of public school students at first.

    Beestar was the highlight of my weekends throughout my elementary and middle school years. It was exciting for me to complete a new set of exercises every week in many different subjects, and the honor roll provided a fun challenge. Beestar has given me creative thinking skills and provided me with a solid academic foundation, which have continued to prove useful to me in the years to come. I highly encourage all students to join Beestar for an invaluable learning experience that well-equips you for success.

    Beestar helped me develop a fascination with trying new things, be it educational or in life in general. I highly encourage everyone to challenge themselves every day by constantly putting themselves in new environments - growing and developing in the process. Thank you Beestar for the many challenges and such an incredible opportunity!
